    Good stuff!

    Chicken Breast stuffed with Feta Cheese, Sundried Tomato, and Red Bell Pepper

    A stuffed chicken breast where the sweetness of the sundried tomatoes harmonizes with the saltiness of the Feta cheese.

    4 servings
    55 minutes 20 mins prep

    4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
    1 medium red bell pepper, diced
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    5 large sun-dried tomatoes, diced
    1 teaspoon thyme
    8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled finely
    1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I use Italian style)
    olive oil
    salt
    pepper
    toothpicks (or Butcher String)
    green onions, chopped (for garnish)

    Saute garlic and red bell pepper, in Olive Oil, for about 3 minutes (just enough to"combine" the flavors).
    Put aside to cool.
    In a bowl, combine Feta Cheese, Breadcrumbs, thyme, Sundried Tomatoes, and Garlic and Red Pepper mixture.
    Toss until well mixed (This will be your"stuffing").
    Lay a flattened piece of Chicken Breast on a cutting board or your counter.
    Put a 1/4 of the above mixture on the flattened Chicken Breast like you would be making a Burrito, and roll as tight as you can get it.
    Secure it with a toothpick or butcher string.
    Place Chicken Breast"roll" on a baking sheet (I spray it with Pam so it does'nt stick), brush with olive oil (this gives it a nice golden brown texture), and season with Salt and Pepper.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Cook for about 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.
    I guess you could try it on a grill, but I never attempted it yet!
    Garnish with choopped Green Onion and serve hot.

    Here's a pic.
